3 out of 5 eggsResponse to Charlie

Pros: I do not personally own this card. This is in response to Charlie's review. PCI 2.0 and 2.1 are virtually identical when it comes to capabilities and speeds. The only differences between the two types is that any changes or upgrades that have been implemented from 2.0 to 2.1 are not fully functional because the full implementations are not taking affect until the release of PCI-e 3.0. And all PCI-e 2.1 cards will work in PCI-e 2.0 slots. So the benefit from 2.0 to 2.1 is virtually null. Hope this helps.

Cons: No cons....I've owned 3 Diamond GPU's and they are and have all been bulletproof. I am buying this one next month for an upgrade and I will write a proper review.

1 out of 5 eggsPCI-E 2.1/ 2.0 compatibility

Pros: Nice looking card. BAD condradiction of support on the product box. 2.1 PCI-e 2.1 suppot printed on the front. 2.0 support printed on the side of the same box.

Cons: The website says pci-e 2.1. But the box, on the side, says PCI-E 2.0 support.

Can anyone shed some light? I plan to use this on an ASUS Crosshair IV formula. The tech guys there is sort of hit and miss. Some guys are tired and not interested in helping. And some of them are up-Tone and very sharp. They have not Idea what to tell me.

Other Thoughts: Possible error on the box. The front say PCI-E 2.1, the side of the box says 2.0 support. Newegg will not be able to help me due to RULES. AND the 2.0 support cards are mostly nvidia and old models. I do not want to get stuck with a $190.00 card. AND the selection of PCI-E 2.0 support CARDS that use AMD chipsets is not so hot.
